Museum of Bergdorf

Bergdorf Goodman's teamed up with the American Visionary Art Museum for their 5th Avenue windows. The museum's in Baltimore, Maryland, but its artists created a collection of fantastical backdrops here in New York for clothes from Jason Wu and Oscar De La Renta, brightly colored homes for Louboutin shoes, erratic sketches frame a bejeweled Valentino bag and a man carved from wood watches over a Rodarte look complete with slashed gloves and Nicholas Kirkwood boots. The museum's mission statement defines visionary art as "art produced by self-taught individuals, usually without formal training, whose works arise from an innate personal vision that revels foremost in the creative act itself," which, when combined with the best of pre-fall fashion makes for a must-visit outdoor museum on the street. Thank god it's finally stopped raining.
